Norwegian Cruise Line ship hit an iceberg in Alaska, returned to Seattle for repair

SEATTLE – A cruise ship that hit an iceberg in Alaska has docked in Seattle for repairs.

Video shows the moment the ship hit an iceberg on Saturday.

The ship was returned to Juneau, where it was inspected. Authorities have allowed it to travel at a lower speed to Seattle.

The Norwegian Sun arrived in Seattle on Thursday. It hit part of an iceberg near Hubbard Glacier in Alaska.

Passengers said the impact was so strong that some of them fell.

A Nevada family on board said the collision resembled a large door slamming.

Benjamin Talbott was out with his family when his brother, Anthony Romo, noticed something in the water and told him to take out his phone. Talbott recorded the scene of the cruise ship hitting a large iceberg.

“Then all of a sudden, boom, the whole ship shook. And I was like, ‘Wow, what’s going on?’ And then I had to start recording and I looked at the front of the ship and all I saw was an iceberg that had just flipped and was going down. And I was like, Oh my, we’ve hit. an iceberg,” he said.

A spokesman for Norwegian Cruise Line said the trip was cut short and guests had to disembark in Seattle due to necessary repairs to the ship.

No injuries have been reported.
